C’arch Architecture + Design
This timber house comprising a cluster of three distinctly separate but linked pavilions, sits lightly on a 3.5 acre site, which is a typically Malay orchard surrounded by the sea, a delicate belt of mangrove, the village cemetery and artificially created ponds. The dining space engages the ground, while the living pavilion is raised off the ground and encompasses the formal entrance to the house. A bridge in a small garden connecting the living space with the pavilion which houses the bedrooms and study. This pavilion is detached from the public spaces and enjoys the intimacy of open baths set in private gardens.
